The lodge is situated in the Malaria-Free Madikwe Game Reserve, which boasts 75,000 hectares of excellent game-viewing territory. All of the Big Five can be found here; lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, elephants and both Black and White Rhino. There is also extensive plains game including sable, gemsbok, springbok and giraffe, as well as over 340 species of birds. Madikwe is also arguably the best place in South Africa to catch a glimpse of the highly endangered and beautiful wild dog. Eight luxurious rooms are built using shaggy thatched roofs and canvas walls to create the classic safari tent atmosphere. The rooms equipped with floor heating to ensure that you are comfortable during the chilly winter months, and air conditioning and a ceiling fan to keep you cool during summer days. Each room is en suite with a hand built "rock" bath and outdoor "safari" shower. A private wooden viewing deck at the entrance overlooks a small stream where animals and birds come to drink. Enjoy fire cooked meals in their enclosed boma, or under the stars at a bush braai. Lounge at the pool or enjoy bird watching from the hammock on the bank of the Groot Marico River. Children of all ages are welcome at Jaci's Safari Lodge and two daily game drives take children 6-12 years of age and adults out on safari together. Two larger family suites that share a private pool are available for larger family groups of 4-8 individuals.
